Ft Weekend

Gordon Newton, a Cambridge graduate, took over as Editor in 1949, and immediately launched a policy of direct recruitment of latest university graduates, primarily from Oxbridge, as its trainee journalists. Many of them proceeded to have distinguished careers elsewhere in journalism and British public life, and became the mainstay of the paper’s own editorial strengths until the 1990s. The first such ‘direct recruit’ was Andrew Shonfield; the second was William Rees-Mogg who went on, via The Sunday Times, to edit The Times in 1967 following its acquisition by Roy Thomson. Other FT Oxbridge recruits included the future Chancellor of the Exchequer Nigel Lawson. The FT’s distinctive recruitment policy for Fleet Street journalists was never well-liked with the National Union of Journalists and ceased in 1966 following the recruitment of Richard Lambert from Oxford, himself a future Editor of the FT.
